The Birthday of the Blessed Virgin Mary – Feast
First reading – Micah 5:1-4
Today we are celebrating the Birthday of the Blessed Virgin Mary. She is from whom was born the Savior who will stand and feed his flock with the power of the Lord, with the majesty of the name of his God. Under His power the people will live secure, for His power will be extended to the ends of the earth. He himself will be peace. She is the joy and hope of each one of us who enjoy this redemption. She makes the path for us to be under the power and majesty of the name of God. Beside her we can feel the presence of the Savior who stand and feed us with the power of the Lord. Together with her we can live secure everywhere. In her we can be peace with him who himself is peace. Let’s reflect: Do I really live beside Mother Mary?
